But, what I have a really hard time deciding is between 2 very good choices. (or 3....)
What is really frustrating right now, is that I thought I had made the decision. Actually, I thought I had made the decision twice already! And, now I don't know.
As mentioned on here, I have decided that I like the Charlotte Mason homeschooling method. That is a pretty firm decision.
So, at first I thought that Ambleside Online looked really good - it was my first intro - but wasn't sure yet.... and so I looked around. Then I found Milestones Academy, and it looked good - and I decided that that was the way I was going to go.
Then, a few months later, I had a few doubts about Milestones Academy. Oh, it does really look good - I had some concerns about the potential cost (as money is tight) - and I went into the big debate again in my head, looked around a lot - then decided I would do Ambleside Online.
So, decision made - so I went and gathered up all the free materials I could find, and turned my worrying to how to handle Canadian History.....
And then - from a post on the Milestones Academy Yahoo group, I went and looked at the program again.
So - I'm down again to a nice simple - I don't know! They both look good! There are things I like about both. I did some looking on some other sites as well, like Simply Charlotte Mason.
Eventually, I went and talked to my husband. After a bunch of talking, he told me that I know what to do - take what I like from both groups, and figure out my own list, using them as a guide.
So, I've bought a planning book from Simply Charlotte Mason that I've been eyeing, to try to figure out exactly what I want.
Strangely, I do feel a bit better about it (although I see a lot of worrying about all the details.... I'm a typical new homeschooling mom, wanting to find the perfect resources....)
